How Can We Pay A Somali Criminal Almost £80,000?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 11, 2017

This is a man who has 30 criminal convictions and has been jailed many times for assaults, robberies and possession of a knife.

Yet this “prolific and violent offender” (the judge’s words) has been awarded (by the same judge) £78,500 in compensation.

This is because the judge ruled that the Home Secretary had unlawfully kept Mohammed in prison for 445 days while there were attempts to deport him.

So £78,500 is his payment for about 15 months spent in prison.

To put this in perspective: £78,500 is slightly more than an MP’s annual salary so it’s a very generous reward by any measure.

This sickening case raises many questions. Why were we not able to deport this Somalian who has clearly nothing to contribute to society?

The answer lies with the European Court of Justice which ruled that he must stay in Britain.

Apparently he was tortured and saw sights of “unimaginable barbarity” when he was a teenager in Mogadishu.

He then spent two years in a refugee camp before arriving in this country in 1996 at the age of 17.

But Britain cannot care for all the damaged people in the world and what about the individuals who have suffered as a result of Abdulrahman Mohammed’s criminal activity since he has been in Britain?

Do they not have human rights too?
